Marketing investment as a percentage of sales varies significantly from brand to brand. Direct-to-consumer brands looking to gain immediate sales can find marketing costs represent more than 30% of their base, whereas more established brands may allocate between 5%-15% (P&G is famously at 11%). Increasingly, that cost is moving into areas such as ecommerce, customer experience, digital marketing and programmatic.
